Craft (Parkhurst)

Reviewed by Nadia Singh

Craft Restaurant in Parkhurst was at the top of my list of restaurants to visit, before heading to the Mother City! I finally tried it out & it was worth the wait :) Very dear friends were out here for two weeks from the Gold Coast (Australia) & on the eve of their departure, we met for a breakfast at Craft. Parkhurst is an incredibly trendy, alive & colorful suburb in Johannesburg - the perfect spot for a restaurant such a Craft. No bookings are allowed so when I got there I was impressed at how quickly we were accommodated by the manager. Our table of 7 consisted of 6 adults & 5 year young Zoe. Zoe despite her age, is quite a discerning eater - much like her parents - ordered quickly & was very satisfied with her kids breakfast. There were times when I had to stop myself from taking a sip of that delicious marshmallow milkshake she ordered! Milkshakes have no age limit :) Before ordering we tried out the light medium roast coffees & they are certainly recommended if you enjoy coffee. The comprehensive menu left us all spoilt for choice. There were various orders of omeletts, the Craft Breakfast, Breakfast Lasagne & healthy alternatives which my mates certainly enjoyed. I tried the Salmon Rosti & thoroughly enjoyed it! The portion was sufficient & it tasted as good as it looked! My friend Katia tried the coconut flapjacks & raved on about how good they were. I sampled my partner Sean's choice which was the Scotch eggs & yum - definitely my next try! Banting breakfasts, Eggs Florentine, French toast, Shakshouka, to name but a few, are all on this colorful menu list! Without the sour, one can't appreciate the sweet which brings me to negatives...parking in Parkhurst requires a great degree of patience! The prices are a bit on the steep side. Due to the popularity of this hot spot, service was very slow - we waited close to an hour for our breakfasts. And lastly...I didn't try the CandyFloss Milkshake or a slice of Oreo Cheesecake :(
